Tips for Making as a Camping Recipe

Baked apple cinnamon roll casserole is great for making over an open fire while camping. It’s the perfect breakfast for a crisp, cool morning outdoors. Or as a dessert treat after a long day of hiking and/or relaxing in the tent!

Just add the roll of cinnamon rolls to the cooler and keep a can of apple pie filling in your pack. Then you can cook this yummy breakfast right over the campfire with a cast iron pan.

To cook: combine the 2 ingredients together in the skillet. Then cover the pan with aluminum foil and cook over the fire until ready, about 20-30 minutes.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I serve with this cinnamon roll apple bake?

For breakfast, I suggest serving with a side of yogurt and perhaps some crunchy granola. Enjoy this cinnamon roll dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and/or whipped cream on top.

How long can I keep leftovers?

Stored in an airtight container this apple fritter cinnamon roll bake will keep well for up to 4 days in the refrigerator. Cover leftovers with foil and reheat leftovers in the oven, to keep them from drying out.

Due to the icing, I do not recommend that you freeze leftovers. However, if you want a make ahead casserole, you can do so without using the icing. Then cool and freeze in a sealed plastic bag for up to 3 months.
Be sure to check the expiration date on the packaged icing before keeping it in the fridge and using it later.
